FREE Rainwater Harvesting Class & Truckload SaleRelease Date: 2016-01-29
With all the rain expected as part of the El Niño storms this year, purchasing a rain barrel (or two) is a smart idea to save money!
The Hughes Green Team is working with the City to host a Rain Barrel Sale and Rain Harvesting Workshop on Saturday, February 6, 2016.
Rain barrels will be able to be ordered online at www.rainbarrelsintl.com and picked up at Hughes Middle School from 9:00-11:00 AM on the day of the workshop. Only rain barrels ordered in advance are guaranteed to be available.
Rain barrels are $85 each but SoCalWaterSmart offers a rebate of $75 per barrel for up to four barrels - that's $10 each!
Specifications of each rain barrel:
- Designed with brass spigot for garden hose attachment
- Barrel has a screen to prevent mosquitoes from accessing water
- Side brass overflow
- Made from plastic reused food grade barrels
- Available in Black or Terra Cotta (subject to availability)
This event is co-sponsored by the City of Long Beach & Councilmember Al Austin.
